I thought the 35th Anniversary GTs had the raised hood scoop common to the 01+ GTsMustang5L5 said:Seeing as he has a '99, i am not sure if he's talking about his stock non-scooped '99 hood or the later '01+ scoop style hood.

Joe347R6 said:Yes I do have a 35th Edition gt with the smaller scoop. I wasn't aware the honeycomb held the scoop in place. My first idea was to remove it and replace it with some sort of mesh grill. If it will help I guess I'll be starting on this soon. Thanks and I'll let you guys know how it goes.
